Eeeek! The Lethal Mechanic

It's halloween time....and achu had to dress up for the party at school. I was wondering what to dress him up as....Dracula , leafman (an idea I got from the net) or frankenstein ...had very little time to decide on something simple...called up a few places and they had a coat which would suit Dracula but then I had to go and collect it time....On our way back home we stopped at a kids store which luckily had dungarees at that instance the lethal mechanic was some red lipstick and some black eyeliner ...2 band aids ...some hair gel and voila! the whole kit was ready...It took me me a record time of 10 minutes to get him all set....Not very impressive but then hey!....with that little time in hand what more can you expect ....Jus clicked a few snaps ( achu never stays still...he's always on the move...)...notice the stitch like pattern on his face and hands ...don't forget the skull tattoo...and the tools with bloodstains on it hmmm...maybe next halloween achu will tell me what he wants to does that make my work easier or tougher ...I wonder!!!!????...don't know...This year its the little LETHAL MECHANIC in action...Run for thy life human....:)

Oh! That Angelic smile

I still remember waiting for the day achu kuttan would look at me and smile....Infact I kept asking Amma when he would give me the toothless grin....Achu and I had a very hectic schedule...all mother and child beginnings are bound to be the same....mine :feed-eat-bathe-feed-eat-feed..the intervals would be smothered with grumblings, naps and some more protests on how a tiny winy child could get hungry so many times a day(includes the night)....!!!!...his cry-eat-sleep-pi-poo-cry-bathe-cry-eat-sleep-eat-pi/poo-cry-eat-sleep....interrupted by the weirdest of noises...I would wonder how the lil one wiled away his time looking at the bare ceiling...I was pretty scared to carry him since he was sooo tiny...he weighed a lil more than 3 kgs...our routine continued till the day he stared straight into my eyes and broke into the expression I longed for...a smile...if a slight lift of one side of the lip would qualify to be called a smile...ok name it a half was heavenly....Now there was something for both of us to do...I made all the possible things to get the smile outta him and he gaped at me all through my attempts amazed at my skills of miming ..many a times he would giggle...there were some instances when he would start whining ....but then after lotsa research I summed up that the strength of a sneeze was directly proportionate to the intensity of smile ..(I had a thesis in the neices and nephews were my subjects...(but be caution a very loud or masculine sneeze invariably ends up with an inconsolable cry)....and hence I named my son achu...u call him he smiles...isn't that great....achhuu! :-)...achuu! :-)...achu! :-)

IVAN- God is being Gracious!

Today is a very happy day...I start a new blog to record the happenings in the life of a soul that means so much to son Rohit fondly called Achu. I was wondering what to name the blog ..was thinking of something that would describe my son the best...the multiplicity of words didn't surprise me...hence the title...I can only describe each day with achu in a sentence which would have an Interjection-Verb-Adjective and achu playing with all those words.... thats what IVAN stands for Interjection-Verb-Adjective-NOUN(one and only ACHU)..incidentally in tamil the blog would just mean 'he is achu' but on more universal terms Ivan means God is gift me this wonderful treasure called Achu..God is truly being gracious ...And Lo! I had the best name for the blog for my son ....IVAN-ACHU
